The book has been kept inside my cupboard for too long , so yesterday I started my first piece of crochet work. Since I am new and had never crochet before, so I only dare to try a small coaster. The book stated the diameter of this coaster is 14 cm, but my end result only measured 12 cm !
I am not satisfied with what I had made. The poor coaster does not look nice. Please do not laugh over it. Well , it is much tougher compared with sewing clothing. Anyway, I think I need a lot of practice to improve my skill. Practice makes perfect, right ?
I put a heavy crystal ball ( actually not really crystal , I think it is made from glass ) on the coaster. The ball was bought by my hubby when we were travelling in Beijing in the year 1996.The diameter of this ball is around 12 cm. Delicate and fine Chinese painting on a small marble stone is sealed inside the glass ball.It is really a fine piece of art .
